Utility Relocation Underway at Covert Avenue Grade Crossing Elimination

Covert Av Grade Crossing 02-01-19Utility relocation for sewer, communications, watermain and gas work is underway at the Covert Avenue grade crossing project – the relocation is expected to be complete by March 1st. The Design-Build contractor previously demolished the existing property at 124 Covert Avenue, New Hyde Park, to advance this element of the project. Structural Work (Support of Excavation walls, or SOE) has begun at the southeast quadrant of the worksite, with grade crossing excavation expected to begin mid-April.

The Covert Avenue grade crossing is being eliminated and reconstructed to provide a two-lane grade-separated underpass with a pedestrian sidewalk on the east side of the underpass. This reconstructed grade crossing has been designed in conjunction with the Village of New Hyde Park and will enhance safety and provide for a quieter and more livable community along the railroad.
